How It Works

The Eastern Maine Community College Monthly Giving Program is a simple and convenient way to provide a steady and cost-effective source of income to the Eastern Maine Community College Foundation from a debit or credit card.

As an online monthly donor, you will be registering to make a debit or credit card donation every month. After you make your initial donation, future donations will be charged every month to your debit or credit card. For example, if you choose to make a monthly donation of $10 today, your next donation of $10 will be automatically charged to your account in exactly one month to the day, and each subsequent month thereafter. If for any reason you wish to increase, decrease or suspend your gift, call 207-974-4711, and we will be happy to accommodate you.

And because your monthly donation is an on-going, reliable source of funding that is processed automatically, you help us reduce our administrative costs—which allows more of each gift to be used immediately to support more students and important on-campus programs. As a monthly supporter of EMCC, you are opted out of all future paper and email solicitations.

Monthly Payment:

Payments will be charged to your preferred credit or debit card account on the same day each month. You will receive an annual statement by mail with all your payment details during January of every year.

Credit Card:

Please maintain a sufficient credit or debit limit on your card on the payment date. If we are unable to process your gift you will be notified.

Record of Payments:

The amount and date of your monthly gift will appear on your credit or debit card statement.

Account/Donation Change:

To ensure timely payments, notify the Monthly Giving Team of any credit card updates or address changes by phone or email (see below).
